Passiva flickor och aktiva pojkar? : en jämförande studie av genusstereotyper i bilderboken
Sammanfattning: The aim of this bachelor thesis is to investigate how gender stereotypes appear in Swedish picture books. The investigation consists of literature studies and the method used is a text –and picture analysis. By using this method, it allows us to interpret both text and pictures in the books. It is carried through by consultation of Yvonne Hirdmans theory of how men and women are two different things and that man in this relation constitutes the norm. We will compare three picture books from 1973 with three picture books from 1993, to see if stereotypes are of the same kind or if any differences appear. We will also examine how the picture books reflect the contemporary sex equality in the society of 1973 and 1993. Do men and women follow stereotypes in the form of different looks, characteristics, feelings and activities? The result indicates that gender stereotypes still appear in picture books. Through the analysis, it appears that girls to a grater extend are described as more girlish in the picture books from 1973, than in 1993. It also appears that the male characters don’t depart from the gender stereotype norm.
